1985 La Lagune Haut Medoc Grand Cru Classe
BORDEAUX 85 TASTING 1
We held a tasting of Bordeaux 85 today with a blend of left and right bank: Mouton Rothschild, Leoville Las Cases, Gruaud Larose, Ducru Beaucaillou, La Lagune, Canon La Gaffeliere, Figeac and Certan de May.
La Lagune came in 3rd with consensus vote, and was the best QPR wines. I enjoyed it very much, confusing it as a right bank Figeac as nose was left bank but also perhaps Cabernet Franc. Palate was rich, mellow and pleasant with totally melted tannins. Really superb quality.

This was very impressive 85, I liked it that it has matured tannins that doesn't irritate me, abundant fruits in the foreground, while the wine itself is pleasant with loads of good fruits which is a typical of good Bordeaux 85. The only flaw was that, the wine could not hold too long, about 30 45 mins, the finishing was weak & slightly diluted, signaling the wine is at its prime now and won't improve much from here.
